Nevada Copper CEO Interview

The following interview of Nevada Copper's (NCU.TO) (NEVDF) CEO & President Giulio Bonifacio was conducted by email and phone in the week ended March 19, 2015. The views expressed herein are those of Mr. Bonifacio.

We have our advanced stage Pumpkin Hollow project in Nevada consisting of a fully permitted, 6,500 tons/day underground copper mine development, with the main shaft having recently achieved a major milestone by reaching 1,900 feet main haulage level. We expect the nearby 70,000 tons/day open pit copper project to receive permits in June, 2015 as a result of the landmark passage of the Land Bill which was pass by the Senate and signed into law by the President. Projected average copper production for the first five years is approximately 75 million lbs/year from our Stage 1 underground mine and an additional 220 million lbs/year from a Stage 2 open pit mine. The project is located near Yerington, Nevada, close to existing infrastructure including road, rail, labor, water and power. We have substantial reserves and resources including copper, gold, silver, as well as a large iron resource all of which have further open extent and upside.
